"Trading floor over here lost power temporarily (I think computers and phones only) for about ten minutes. Rumor is someone clogged a toilet on 7th floor and it leaked into some communications closet on 6th floor (trading). They haven't confirmed but that seems to be the persistent belief."

If only CNBC were broadcasting from there live today, Steve Liesman could confirm! (And maybe lend a hand. I don't know why, but SL seems like a guy who travels with his own plunger.)
